Hello, my external drive(model # WD1600C032) is lighting up fine but my computer says it is not recognizing the drive and asking to reformat it ? I downloaded the Lifeguard Diagnostics program and ran the quick and extended tests and both were fine. I know its not my USB because I plugged a different newer WD external drive in and it works fine.
My computer isn’t showing the external drive in Windows Explorer either. The hard drive is lighting up and running but not being recognized by my computer.
Is my data gone or is there anything else I can do ?
